Big Data & Document Analytics

Economists at The Brattle Group routinely host, develop, and work with large-scale datasets that transform detailed customer, supplier, transaction, and other types of so-called “big data” into information that is useful for economic analysis. Our specialized data services ensure that scale does not prevent us from revealing the essential economic stories the data can tell.

Economic and financial analysis based upon large-scale datasets is a core requirement in complex litigation. Brattle has the infrastructure and expertise that enables us to get these datasets up and running on high performance big-data platforms. We provide data services for clients, testifying experts, courts, and regulators in connection with litigation matters and complex commercial disputes. The breadth and depth of our experience enables us to offer exceptional data processing and analytics capabilities.
